We are way too dependent on automobiles here in the states... if we gave a second thought to riding a bike or walking to our destination when possible then us americans wouldn't freak out at this gas issue. I understand some people live a long way off from their work or such...but most of us live only a few miles from work...

We should really think about healthier/cleaner methods of transportation than just cars all the time..http://veganforum.com/forums/images/smilies/redface.gif

Most people i come across are disgusted at the thought of not driving somewhere...even if its just down the road http://veganforum.com/forums/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

Look on the bright side Surf'n'Sun - thanks to our obsession with the motor vehicle soon all of us who live in low lying areas will be able to take the boat to work like they can in New Orleans....
